Task Type Compatibility Issue
Category Platform-specific
Status Closed

Reported for freebsd 7.2 (current production version, true for previous version, unknown for 8.0 in beta now)

freebsd does not provide CLOCK_PROCESS_CPUTIME_ID
(even if CLOCK... is posix).

As a consequence, compilation of the unix-source is currently not possible for freebsd target.

Might be a simple selection for Change 4356 ?
(assuming a relevant test in ./configure)
(getrusage() seems available on freebsd, but does it provide the pieces of information needed, I do not know that code good enough to assert that)

This task depends upon
